HR Events 2020

It’s been a crazy year with everyone’s plans, goals and ideas for what 2020 could be shifting quite drastically from where they were in January. The event planning space is no different as conference planners have been scrambling to take events entirely online and ensure they don’t completely lose their audiences for an entire year.

With the volume of events going online, your inbox is likely flooded with offers for seminars turned webinar, and annual tradeshows or conferences turned digital summit. As you’ll know, we here at the HR Exchange Network already do our fair share of online events and put a lot of effort into curating highly relevant content presented by industry thought leaders.

With that in mind, here are 8 events from us here at HREN and our sister networks that can help you navigate the rest of a wildly unpredictable 2020 as well as the year ahead.
